Meet Charlotte – A True Success Story

Charlotte is one of the many success stories that we receive each month from parents, nurses, and caregivers.  We hear a similar story to hers routinely, and this proves that vision screenings absolutely change lives.  Charlotte didn’t have any visible symptoms or family history of a vision problem at all.  A Prevent Blindness North Carolina screening detected Amblyopia, and before long, she was in a treatment plan with her doctor to reverse the condition.

As a testament of thanks, her mother wrote us this heartfelt note to share.

“I wanted to reach out and say thank you for doing a vision screen on my daughter, Charlotte, at her daycare.  Based on the screen results, it was recommended that she see an eye doctor.  At this follow-up appointment, we were told she had amblyopia.  […]  We are working with her eye doctor to hopefully correct the condition since we caught it early. She wears glasses now and a patch about an hour a day.

I am incredibly grateful that your organization helped my daughter in such an amazing way. Thank you very much for everything you are doing for children in our community.  You are providing an amazing service, and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it!!!”
